Firm partner Roger Moore recently completed his term as the chairman for the Nebraska State Bar Association (NSBA) Workers’ Compensation Section for 2014 with the conclusion of the Annual Workers’ Compensation Seminar on Nov. 14.
“My responsibilities were to develop topics, secure speakers and serve as master of ceremonies for the seminar by communicating with a variety of individuals over the course of numerous months,” Moore said. Roughly 100 people attended this year’s seminar, including firm associates Brody Ockander and Brianne Rohner Erickson.
Moore completed his final year of serving a four-year rotation of leadership positions within the Workers’ Compensation Section, which started when he was nominated for and elected to the treasurer position three years ago. Moore was the third member of the firm to serve as chairman of the NSBA Workers’ Compensation Section. Partner Todd Bennett and I are past chairmen as well. Moore has participated as a member of the WC Section for the last 14 years, and is admitted to practice law in both Nebraska and Iowa.
There are currently more than 30 sections in the NSBA, according to its website. Each section is made up of a group of attorneys who share similar interests and voluntarily join that section. Attorneys can belong to more than one section.
The Workers’ Compensation Section is consistently one of the largest sections of the association. The section’s goals, according to Moore, are similar to the NSBA’s mission, which can be found here. Some of the priorities that Moore highlights include “to foster and maintain integrity, professionalism, civility and high standards of conduct by NSBA members,” and to help “provide quality support and services for NSBA members.”
Moore’s service is yet another example of the efforts our attorneys and staff have made to be leaders in the legal community, both as participants and leaders in shaping the legal conversations that affect our clients.
